Last year employees across major sectors have been treated to a median salary increment of 11.5% which is a phenomenal growth.

The gig economy has emerged wiser and stronger with reality replacing hype. Artificial Intelligence is being seen to displace tasks rather than entire jobs and a cumulative 1.3 crore jobs will be created across the 17 sectors in the next four years.”
